"As a whole, the London Art Portfolio course was an extremely good experience for me. The atmosphere was very creative, free and friendly...When I first started the London Art Portfolio course, I had just finished high school and had very little idea of my future studies.
Working with Julia helped me secure a place on a Foundation Course at London College of Communication, and later on a place on BA Womenswear at Central Saint Martins.
I would recommend London Art Portfolio to anyone looking to build up a portfolio and wishing to develop their creativity!"
